Magnificent Floral Designs with Watercolor Brush Markers

I  heat embossed the image from the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Flourishing Garden on Watercolor Paper Set (Hot-Pressed, 5″ x 7″ Loose Sheets, 30 sheets/set) in Antique Gold Embossing Powder.

Next, I applied Persian Blue and Turquoise Watercolor Brush Markers on the biggest flower at the bottom left. I used Persian Blue on the base of the petals and added a hint of Turquoise in other places. I colored all the petals in the same way.

For the flower overlapping it, I used Desert Night Watercolor Brush Marker. The pink flowers, on the other hand, were colored with Purple Wine (from the Tropical Fiesta Set) and Purple Wine (from the Spring Garden Set) Watercolor Brush Markers.

The remaining smaller flowers got a mix of Turquoise, Desert Night, and Persian Blue to differentiate the colors.

Next, the blue coneflower was colored with Persian Blue, while the leaves got the Jet Black Watercolor Brush Marker.

I also colored outside the image. For this, I used a diluted Jet Black pigment so that the die-cut wouldn't have a white outline.

Once the image was dry, I used the coordinating die to cut the image.

Next, I used diluted Jet Black pigment and added a color wash to another panel of watercolor cardstock. When I was happy with the look, I dried the panel and then added black splatters.

After I adhered the image to the panel with Instant Dimension Foam Tape, my panel was now ready to be framed!
